This ability of the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland to be able to communicate and send messages through the pituitary stalk is really something. And that pituitary gland is so small. It seems to be well protected.
Nevertheless, things do go wrong with the pituitary gland, like tumors or malfunctions of the gland. I have never known anyone who has had problems with their pituitary gland, but I would think it would be pretty serious.
I would like to know if there are any nutritional guides that would help to keep the pituitary gland healthy.
